August 9th – The Downtown Chamber Series – Phoenix Art Museum
This series has been going strong for over 17 years. If you’re looking for some of the best musicians in town, player some of the most timeless pieces of music in the most interesting venues, look no further than the Downtown Chamber Series.
August 20th – Shabazz Palaces – Crescent Ballroom
Shabazz Palaces is the current project of Ishmael Butler, formerly known as Butterfly from the 90s jazz hip hop group, Digable Planets. Shabazz Palaces is quiet possibly one of the most unique hip hop groups touring and recording, today. The music is dark and ambient, often obscuring the ever present “beat” that you normally find in hip hop. Butler’s vocal style has a maturity that would be expected from someone who was an early pioneer of the golden age of hip hop and has kept progressing, instead of holding on to past efforts.
August 18th – Laetitia Sadier – Valley Bar
|Laetitia Sadier is best known as the vocalist for Stereolab. However, after seeing Stereolab, Monade and her solo project, it is clear that she has so much more influence over the sound of any band she is in. There is a clear consistency between projects that includes all the best parts of each group. She’s on a short list of acts that I will do all in my power to see, anytime they come through town.|
August 11th – Badabing -Yucca Tap Room
San Diego duo, Badabing, return to Phoenix playing a free show at Yucca Tap Room! Also on the bill, two of my favorite local bands, JJCnV and Man Hands!
